Cosmopolitan BEAUTYCON, the biggest beauty and wellness festival in the metro, happened from August 31 to September 1 at the SMX Convention Center. Hundreds of Cosmo girls flocked to the venue to shop the coolest brands, plus they also got to meet and listen to the talks of their favorite celebs and influencers.
One of the speakers from Day 1 was singer and actress Mikee Quintos. Her segment was called How I Found My Place In A Digital World.
Mikee said that she tries to draw a line between her personal life and what she shares online to her thousands of fans. She's also careful with curating the things that she posts on her social media accounts. She asks herself, "Will this post invite negative comments?" or "Will my audience be compelled to comment bad stuff on this particular post?" However, she wasn't always like that. "[Pero] A few years ago, wala talaga akong pake. I would just post whatever I want about school and my life."
Other than social media, Mikee also talked about her future goals. She said that she constantly discusses with her parents and manager her dream of winning a Best Actress award. "Okay lang na laitin ako sa looks and all, pero in my heart, I really love my craft. Nasa acting talaga yung heart ko." Another goal of hers? To build her dream house that she *designed* and to help other people as well. She's working towards this dream by taking up Architecture at the University of Santo Tomas.
